Torreon is one of the country’s youngest cities and is located in the state of Coahuila. 

 

Torreon is part of the Comarca Lagunera, Mexico’s 9th largest metropolitan area, made up of 15 municipalities in the states of Coahuila and Durango. Torreon was officially established as a city in 1907, when a train station was built there during president Porfirio Diaz’s industrial movement.

 

Torreon is known as the "City of Great Endeavors" for its thriving commerce and industry. The city’s most important industrial sectors are metallurgy in lead, silver and zinc processing, as well as milk production, textile manufacturing, and automotives and electrical parts production. Because of this, Torreon is a popular host city for industrial congresses, conventions and business meetings.

 

The city’s Historic Center offers a number of sites and attractions, including the Carmen Cathedral, the Casino de la Laguna and the beautiful Martinez Theater. Torreon is also famous for its Christ of Noas that overlooks the city from a nearby hilltop. Similar to the Christ statues overlooking Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and Cochabamba in Bolivia, the Christ of Noas is the third largest of its kind in the world. It is visited by religious tourists and groups throughout the year. 

 

Torreon has a number of venues for hosting events, including the Centenario Coliseum with space for up to 7,220 people, and the University Cultural Center with space for up to 900 people. The Torreon Marriott Hotel has 146 guestrooms and suites, and 7 meeting rooms; the largest fits 400 people. The Camino Real Torreon has 124 guestrooms and suites and 5 meetings rooms; the largest space holds 400 people.
